The World Around Us

I LOVE spring!!! 

We live in the midwest - we have snow in the winter - it gets cold etc....  So when spring comes - it is so refreshing!!!  The brown grass turns green - the plants start to bloom - and my tulips appear.  I love God's creation!  He gave us so many beautiful things to look at. 

One summer, as we were driving through the back-roads in Nevada / Utah - I was amazed at all of the different scenery.  I marveled at how God did not make the world mundane....  He gave us mountains, hills, valleys, deep valleys etc. - and that is just the ground.  Take a look at all of the different plants, trees, grasses etc that there are....  You would not believe all of the different varieties we even have in our yard - and we do NOT have a huge property.  Take a look at all the animals. 

Take a look at all the people - God made us unique!  We are made in the image of God.  He loves us so much that He made us this special world that we live in....

The Bible verse for today is Romans 1:20...

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

All of this wonderful things I have been talking about - are not here by accident - they are proof that God created them. This beautify could NOT have just developed by chance - they are made by an intelligent Creator - God!!!

As you look at the wonderful things in nature that GOD has created - I hope that you can praise Him!!!

Even more precious - is how God views you!  He sent His only Son to this world - to die in your place so that you can live forever with God!  Have you trusted in Jesus as your Savior?  Do you believe that He died on the cross for you?  Do you know that the penalty for sin is death - and the only acceptable payment - is the blood (death) of Jesus?  But do you know the BEST news of all?  Jesus did NOT stay dead - He arose from the grave 3 days later - because HE IS GOD!!!  He was the perfect payment for our sin!!!

Please accept Jesus' free gift - of taking your place / payment today - while you still have time!  You will never know what tomorrow might bring - and it may be too late....
